Good morning everyone <3
It’s currently raining where I am, so perfect weather to blog. Today I want to share an outfit I put together last year. I’ve featured this design before, but in another counterpart. So I will mention that a bit later on in the post. If you’ve been reading my blog you might even remember what other piece I’m on about.
So I put together an outfit just to play around with. More mix-match, than planned. I was really out that day, to see what the floral kimono would look like and to scout out locations to shoot my looks.
These shots were taken outside my dads company unit. A perfect place to give an urban feel, even though situated in the countryside.
I bought this kimono from ASOS back in may last year, for my holiday. I thought it would be the perfect style to wear, in the sun. Especially giving me some extra protection from the suns rays. Not to mention, I’d feel very Lana Del Rey, wearing a long chiffon robe. Standing by the villa with the ocean breeze, allowing the material to dance around me.
Sorry I got a bit lost then, now back to the outfit…
So I ordered like I said from ASOS for £35, which I thought was very reasonable. The design is absolutely gorgeous and for those you know me, I adore dark florals. There is something so enticing about that style of floral print. I think it adds a little touch of danger, to the overall style.
The reclaimed vintage chiffon kimono is extremely lightweight and constructed very nicely. It sits against my frame perfectly, allowing for easy movement.
I really do love ASOS’s reclaimed vintage section. (It is one of my favourite sections of their site.) You are always introduced to these amazing one off pieces, inspired by reclaimed designs and fabrics. I’ve got a few pieces from over the years, that are all so unique.

Now sadly this was bought last year, so it is currently out of stock. You can however use the link below to see the exact page it was ordered from.
Do you remember the other item I was talking about, in the beginning of this post? The one that features the same chiffon material and same print?
(Click the picture and you’ll be taken to the post I wrote about this look.)
I have also included below the link to ASOS’s menswear section for: ‘Reclaimed Vintage’. They have currently some fabulous pieces, perfect for spring/summer. So you’re bound to find something unique! I’ve just had a look now and already got my eye on a few items!
I will be featuring the floral kimono again this summer (and the chiffon shirt in the same print), so I’ll keep you guys posted!
Have any of you followers reading, got any reclaimed items from ASOS before? I’d love to see what unique pieces you’ve all got!
